to hook up my amp to my radio I need to remove or disable a pin from the 25 pin din plug . How do I do this ? thanks John kb2huk
If you need to remove it (as in the socket is keyed for NO pin at that pin location), you can use the removal tool PROVIDING the DB-25 isn't potted and non-accessible. If you just need to disable that pin, you can just cut the wire to that pin on the cable and leave the pin in place in case you need to re-use it.
Curious but what kind of amplifier hookup uses a DB-25? While I may not have had hands and eyes on every amp ever built, I have seen alot of them and none required a DB-25. Most only require a phon jack for keying, a coax in and out and perhaps a molex or DB-9 to radio for control lines. If you're using a DB-9, don't be mistaken thinking it is a serial port and try to hook it up that way. If it's a DB-9, it could just be a simialr 9 pin as used ina serial but wired totally different. Be careful.
